Welcome to The First Presbyterian Church in Springfield!
We are a welcoming congregation that seeks to cultivate disciples of Jesus Christ in a community of learning, healing and sharing.  Located in the heart of Flourtown, we are rich in history and we are boldly forging our future for which we know God is preparing us.  Our congregation believes in the importance of family; commitment to our neighborhood and world through mission; and nurturing  spiritual values through our ministries of worship, education, and fellowship.

Upcoming Events:
First Sundays at First Pres:  Monthly Vespers Service on the first Sunday evening of each month at 5:00 pm.  Feel free to come as you are to an intimate time of worship through prayer, music, communion and liturgy.  Sunday, Nov. 2 - Vespers music will be provided by Wyndmoor musicians Mandy & Mike Schaller.  Children and youth of all ages are most welcome to participate in this less formal worship experience.  Special Advent Vespers on Dec. 7.

Veterans Recognition Celebration & Luncheon:  Sunday, Nov. 16 - 11:00 am.  Come honor our vets and enjoy good fellowship and a catered luncheon.  If you would like to sponsor a flag in honor or memory of a loved one, please call the church office.  Flags will line the church property 11/9-11/16.

Philabundance: 3rd Saturday of every month 12p.m.-4p.m. Once a month we travel to Philabundance in South Philly (3 blocks from Citizens Bank Park) to help pack Senior boxes, which are delivered to seniors who are unable to get out to shop.  The work is not difficult and the fellowship is fun!  Meet in the church parking lot for carpooling. 

Anti-Hunger Dinner and Auction:  Saturday, Nov. 1, 5:30 pm at the home of Tricia and Dave Robison.  Join us for an evening of fellowship as we gather to support those who struggle to feed their families.  All proceeds and donations will be used for our monthly Costco shopping to stock the food pantry @ Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry.  For more information, call the church office.

Don't forget the Sharing Cupboard!  Canned and packaged food items are desperately needed each week.  Your contributions are much appreciated and always delivered to Germantown Ave. Crisis Ministry on Tuesdays.  The community is welcome to drop off food donations on Sunday mornings between 9-12, and most Monday-Thursday evenings from 7:30-8:30.
